  • glue stain on tablesaw

    I recently did a small glue-up job and used my tablesaw because of its flatness. The next day I found that squeeze-out on the bottom had stained my tabletop through the sheet of waxed paper. It isn't raised or on top of the surface and it isn't rust. I have steel-wooled and waxed it but the stain isn't coming out. Is this a possible problem? Also, what in yellow glue (Titebond for internal use) would stain?

    That's a good question. I may need to do some checking into what would cause Titebond to stain cast iron. If I had to guess I would say that since Titebond is a water based glue, what you've got is a water stain. Not a rust mark but a black water stain. I am going to go try this with a old test bed saw thats around here and see what happens.

      Jake,
      I was just curious if you'd had an opportunity to try the glue job on the tablesaw and what the resulting "stain" may be and if it may cause problems later?

        I have had some moisture problems with my shop when it first fired up. I have several stains on the surface of the saw but they fo not hinder production.
        I regularly use a 5" ra sander with 220 grit on the tops then I wax them with Johnson's paste wax.
        Yeah I know some don't like that but it works well for me. If I have to use it on a material that the wax will cause trouble on later, I just remove it with a little solvent. When I am done, I sand and rewax. No big deal. The added benefit has been repeated sandings over time have REALLY polished the top up.
